    Summary

    You have a good life. You move from planet to planet as you see fit, work wherever your skills come in handy, dodge your past whenever it threatens to haul you back and generally find contentment wherever you land.

    Until a Mandalorian and his kid interrupt your vacation.

    Summary

    I wanted to know how Berserk would end. What would happen to Guts, Casca, and their son. How all the characters would find closure. What sort of things this mad, difficult, beautiful story was saying.

    Here's my ending to Berserk. In 2021, I wrote this to find out what would happen next. I found something out, at least. It ended up quite different from what Studio Gaga started publishing in 2022 (which I had no idea they would do while I was writing this). So, read on, and I hope you enjoy. This work follows on Miura's last manuscript, Episode #364. It starts after Griffith has left the island (alone), when Guts and Casca are alone together for the first time in years.

    Summary

    Kagome went back to the Feudal Era because that's where her heart was, but a lot changes in three years' time.

    Her relationship with Inuyasha ends on a lonely note, but Kagome throws herself at life face-first — hobbies, inventions, adventures...and especially dating. Going through a laundry list of old flames and new challengers, Kagome finds herself frustrated with the lack of progress. In a fit of recklessness, she involves one person she never thought she would.

    "One month," she said. "One month for fun and games. That much is alright, isn't it?"

    And why Sesshoumaru agreed is a mystery.

    Summary

    Form (Build: Vol. II)
     

    In Eighth-Year Hogwarts, Head Students Draco and Hermione try to figure their friends, futures, and family responsibilities, as they navigate falling in love for the first time and their new relationship post-war. In the face of their unhappy histories and shared traumas, they learn to heal themselves through mandated therapy and each other.

     

    If you haven't read Ashes (Build Vol. I), please do so first!


    Inspired by: Remain Nameless by heyjude19
    Remain Nameless's Draco often lamented how much time was lost with Hermione because he was a bigoted prat and mired in self-loathing. This work is a mental exercise that strives to answer the question of what would happen if DHr continued at Hogwarts after the war and had the proper supports to learn to forgive and heal together? RN is NOT required reading to understand this story. Expect smut, therapy, and two-way notebooks.

    Summary

    Title should be changed because there is so much talking. SO MUCH TALKING. Between everyone.

    This fic is the slowest of slow burns. It was intentionally written to build gradually as a cohesive narrative that expands over time because you can't get a good emotional release without FOREPLAY.

    What if Ed didn't go full 'Evil-Ed' post Stede? How would Izzy react to an Ed that still wasn't quite right even though Bonnet was gone?

    What would it be like if they thought Stede Bonnet was fucking dead, but then he wasn't?

    Themes include: grief, loss, guilt, forgiveness, hurting people you love, healing, backsliding, the effects of childhood trauma, consent, power dynamics.

    There will be no themes of sexual assault/violence in excess of the show.

    I'm not over tagging this jawn because I don't want to spoil the whole story ahead of time. Where's the fun if you know half of what you can expect from the tags alone. Don't you just want to let a story unfold, friend?

    Fuck counter: 484 fucks (I mean the word. They haven't fucked 484 times. That would be ludicrous)

    Summary

    Toni wished for a never-ending OG pasta bowl before she could go back to her real life. Fatin desired to move to L.A. and become a digital influencer. Rachel Reid could still dream about making it to Stanford and the Olympics. Leah and Martha sought for connections while Shelby, Dot and Nora wanted purpose. But what would they really get after their time on the Island? How do they deal with learning that their losses were staged for unethical purposes?

    This story picks up immediately after the events of Season 2 with one major change: there are no boys on this (sorry, not sorry). This fic is my take on what Season 3 could have been. It initiates from Toni's perspective and, as the story unfolds, the scope broadens. There may be some overlapping with series such as "The L word", "The L Word Gen Q", and other LA-based series.

    English isn't my first language so there may be some mistakes here and there (I'll try my best to avoid them, though)

    Summary

    After agreeing to put their possible relationship on hold, this is a collection of shared moments between Yuu and Jamil as their affections for one another continue to grow.

    Some moments are long and intimate.

    Some moments are short and sweet.

    Inspired by the Vignette stories and special events of Twisted Wonderland.

    Then the hand smoothed its way upward, giving the top of her head a founding pet before pulling away.

    Hold on, Yuu knows that touch.

    “That was…you were acting as a retainer.”
    “Yes.”
    “So that happens…often for you.”
    “Uh-huh.”
    “Because you were tasting for poison…through his mouth.”
    Jamil struggled to push the word out. “…yes.”

    “Then…” Glancing to her hand, the vice housewarden of Scarabia reached a finger to hook around hers—touching the smoothness of her skin against his calloused ones. When she didn’t pull away but heard her breath hitch, Jamil continued to interlace his digits with hers as he asked, “…what do you feel now that could be shared between us?”

    Summary

    "You need to know something," said Fili, taking her face in his hands. "You always have me. Even if the Valar take you away tomorrow, I will always be your brother. I want you. I'm going to fight Thorin for you, but even if I lose, you are always my sister. I would sooner stop being a dwarf than stop being your brother."

    Can exploring caves land you in a hobbit's pantry? It happened to Sara Miller. Taken from the 21st century, she must navigate through middle-earth to find a way back home. But to do so she will have to understand why the Valar have sent her in the first place, something even Gandalf does not know. All Sara wants to do is return home so she can resume the search for her family but now she is stuck going on this insane quest.

    Why are wizard's so capricious? Thorin has first hand experience with one, namely Gandalf. Thorin is determined to reclaim his home in Erebor for his people and was even prepared to accept a hobbit on the quest. But now Gandalf insists that if he wants his help he must allow a woman from another world into his company as well. But just because the wizard brings her along doesn't mean Thorin has to play nice. Who is this woman anyhow and why is Mahal's mark on her hand?

    Summary

    Takes place after season 1 of Loki and follows the God of Nothing timeline in the Dragonlance books/musical where Raistlin succeeds in attaining godhood. 

    Loki travels the multiverse in search of Sylvie and meets Raistlin. The two gods begin their journey together and undergo a great deal of growth and healing along the way. They form friendships and face new enemies together.

    I try to provide enough information so if you're not familiar with Loki or Dragonlance, you can still follow along and enjoy the story.

    NSFW chapters will be labeled. Currently ch 3, 4, 15, 20, 29, 31, 41, and 49. If you're looking for particular pairings, check the summaries for the chapters. The story starts with Raistlin/Loki. The other pairings/groupings don't come till MUCH later and some haven’t been featured yet, but we’re building up to it, so be forewarned about that if you're here for those ships.

    My limerick summary of this fic:
    There’s a lot Raist and Loki endured.
    Now it’s their time to be cured.
    They both start to heal.
    Emotions they’ll feel.
    Whilst the multiverse will be toured.
